Some Reasons Why Men Should Try CBD!
Reduce the rick of obesity:
Over 70 million adults in the U.S. are obese 35 million are men, 99 million are considered overweight 54 million are men. Being overweight and obese are risk factors that can cause health problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, joint problems, and gallstones, and other conditions. Researchers with the Scientific Journal of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, studied the effects of CBD on immature fat cells to explore possible benefits on treating and preventing obesity. They found that CBD stimulated genes and proteins that enhance the breakdown and oxidation of fat while also increasing the body's ability to burn calories. The results were from CBD's ability to induce "fat browning" a process of converting white colored fat tissue that stores energy to beige colored fat tissue that burns. Research has shown that our endocannabinoid system (ECS) regulates appetite and metabolism significantly lowering the rate of obesity.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States, in 2017 heart disease killed 347,879 men, averaging 1 in every 4 male deaths. Half of men who die suddenly of coronary heart disease had no previous symptoms. CBD combined with a healthy diet and exercise can reduce blockage in arteries, lower cholesterol, reduce stress response in heart attacks, and reduce blood pressure.
Reduces anxiety and stress:
Stress is the leading cause of mental health disorders in men. One of the most common reasons people use CBD is for its ability to alleviate stress and anxiety Cannabidiol can boost serotonin reception and regulate mood and behavior. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness affecting 40 million adults in the United States. CBD products can quickly help you relax from situations that make you feel anxious. These beneficial properties of CBD can also be seen in how it can reduce the symptoms of depression and help users fight insomnia. CBD is a potent compound that is gaining popularity as an alternative medicine research indicates that CBD shows promise as a fast-acting antidepressant. Studies on both animals and humans have shown that CBD may help lower feelings of isolation, relieve autism symptoms, and reduce the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Trials show CBD significantly reduced the social anxiety associated with a simulated public speaking test on healthy subjects.
May help with prostate cancer:
Prostate Cancer is the most common form of cancer in males affecting approximately 1 in 7 men. It is estimated 1 in 39 men die of this cancer. Normal prostate cells contain both CB1 and CB2 receptors. However, prostate cancer cells have an excess of these receptors. This means that they have a greater accord for cannabinoids (like CBD) than normal cells. Laboratory studies done on cannabinoids have shown that when these cells are treated with CBD the cells can become less viable and more susceptible to apoptosis (programmed cell death), cancer cell surfaces is decreased, CBD discourages the formation of tumor blood vessels which are needed by prostate cancer tumors to nourish themselves.
